Hey guys - following on from the Salt&Stitch Winter Wardrobe Series, I have created a FREE Winter Wardrobe Planner to help you with your sewing plans this winter!
This simple little planner folds up neatly into a tiny booklet that you can fit into your purse or bag and take with you just in case you should pop into a fabric store - and you'll know exactly what you need + how much for each pattern you'd like to make!
It also includes a handy little section with information about our favourite winter sewing fabrics - which might lend a hand when it comes to choosing...

Printing your planner:
The PDF is a two page A4 setout. Make sure that you print them double sided to get the cute little cover on the front!
If you find that you need a little more space, or have a few complicated patterns coming up that have a lot of notions involved that you'll need to remember, simply print the planner at A3 and hit "fit to page" which will expand it nicely to give you more room.
Then get creating!
You can use water colours, markers, crayons, pencil or small swatches of fabric to put together a colour palette - taking inspiration from things that you LOVE - pattern companies, sewists + makers, fashion labels, magazines, nature.. anything!
Its so handy to have with you so when you are out and about you can check if certain colours will go with your grand winter sewing plans!
Then carry out a little wardrobe inventory - figure out what you might need more of or what is missing... and grab some inspiration - again from pattern makers, sewists + makers, magazines, people you see in the street - and find some patterns that match in! I've shown a few of my favourites here - check them out.
Then fill out the pattern section of your planner with types + amounts of fabrics, zips, buttons, interfacing, lining, threads and anything else you might need to complete each pattern.
FOLD IT UP!
If you've chosen to print double sided, there is a sweet little title block on the front - which - if your anything like me - will help you to find it amongst all of the other stuff in your bag easily!
Its perfectly purse sized, or you could store it in that side zip pocket of your favourite bag so that its always on hand if you should need it. Carry it with you just in case!
Phew, if you have made it all this way without signing up, you can below!
The password will appear straight away, and you'll be able to access our FREE RESOURCE LIBRARY (under the FREE tab at the top). Only more cool things to come --> so sign up to keep up to date!
Happy sewing everyone!
